The competition there is rather weak. They just have a lot of big name guys that were built off of each other by passing the belt around. I'm convinced that before Jon Jones, Anderson Silva could have gone up and taken the belt for sure. This can be proven by seeing how he stomped Forrest effortlessly like an adult fighting a 5th grader. That was when Forrest had just lost the title. Then there's Rashad. It would have been Shadface 2.0 maybe even worse because Silva's precision is by far more accurate than Machida's. Even Forrest was getting the better of Rashad until the last exchange. Then there's Machida (Of course they'd never fight). But if they had, COMPARED to Silva, Machida's striking is one dimensional. Silva's speed, power, range, precision, and confidence would ultimately get the better of him. Rampage and Shogun, you get the point. Sorry if my tone here comes off a little strong. I really do enjoy fights at LHW. However, I do think it's a little overrated. In fact, I would say that it has actually gotten stronger now that it has a dominate champ. Flame away.
